ISLAMABAD: Federal Government chalks out a four stage plan to cope with the PTI’s Azadi March.
As a part of the plan, hundreds of containers have been brought into the capital and stored in the suburbs for the time being to secure the roads leading to the Diplomatic Enclave and the Red Zone in the first place. Section 144 has already been imposed in the capital. For now, the PTI or PAT workers will not be allowed into the Red Zone, main areas of the capital.
According to plan, the law enforcement agencies have been directed to negotiate with the protesters. If it doesn’t work, then the government would resort to another plan, which is to seal Islamabad and Rawalpindi. Once sealed, not a single person would be allowed to leave or enter into the twin-cities. More than 20,000 personnel of army, Islamabad police, Rangers, Frontier Constabulary (FC), Punjab police, Punjab constabulary, and Azad Kashmir’s reserved police would be deployed to stop the protesters from entering into the twin cities.
At the third stage, the government would allow the marchers and the protesters to hold their peaceful rally outside the capital, the place and area for which has yet to be decided. In case, the PTI and PAT rallies attempt to enter into the city, they plan D would become operational, according to which, all the violators would either be arrested or stopped with an iron fist.
